SQL Anywhere security

I am wondering if someone could point me to a document that would explain/define what, if any, security is implemented on a Watcom/SQL anywhere database that sits on a laptop.  I am specificly referring to when a person is not connected via LAN/DIAL-UP.  People have suggested that we implement a third party product to encrypt/secure the data.  I don't think this is necessary but I need some information to back this position up.  My thoughts are if you take away the standard logins (ie DBA/SQL) the casual thief would not be able to crack the data.  Any help/comments would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Kevin

You're totaly right, the security is stored IN the database. So you change the password of the standard DBA and you create new users and/or groups in your database to whom you can attribute rights for each table, SP, view,etc... if you want.
If you want you can additionaly to that encrypt your database, but you don't need a 3° party product for that. The dbinit utility with the command switch -e does that for you. Remark that encryption slows down performance of the DB
